About this Item

8vo., [ff 1] + [vi] + [1]-100 + [101]; original printed wrappers, disbound from a larger volume; rear wrapper with inch-long tear to bottom margin; ink library number to p. [1]; few scattered contemporary pencil annotations to text; two discrete newspaper tailings affixed to leaves; still good overall. First edition. Hedges wrote his historical sketch of East Hampton, he writes, at the behest of a committee of citizens for delivery at the 200th anniversary of the town. The pamphlet contains much of interest, but was presented primarily as a "tribute to the character of our Puritan Ancestors" and to "correct some unfavorable impressions in reference to the so often scouted Eat End." Pages 52-72 contain genealogical information on several prominent families, including the Gardiner's, Conkling's, Dayton's, Hedges', Huntting's, and others. Hedges relied especially on the John Lyon Gardiner's manuscript entitled the "Chronicles of East Hampton" in preparing this pamphlet for publication. Scarce in trade. Bookseller Inventory # 4571
